Almost exactly nine months to the week when Barcelona beat Real Madrid 2-6 in the Bernabeu and then knocked Chelsea out of the Champions League semi-final, birth rates in the Condal City have shot up by 45%. This comes as no surprise to me, as my older readers will remember that my mother told me I was conceived just a couple of hours after Spain beat Russia in the 1964 European final, and again half an hour after that! A good win always makes us men frisky! Anyway the maternity sections of local hospitals said they are asking for extra staff to cope with the Champions League babies, the Cup Winner babies, the League championship babies etc., etc. At this rate Barcelona is going to be the biggest city in Europe!
